Lost John
Well the ugliest man I ever seen was long lost John from Bowling Green
No hat on his head no shoes on his feet, begging the women for his bread and meat
He's long gone , That's what I mean
He's long long gone from Bowling Green

Well I had an old dog his name was Will
He ran lost John to the top of the hill
Last time old lost John was seen
He was running like a rabbit outta Bowling Green


Lost John standing alone in the rain
Around the corner came a passenger train
John took a grip , couldn't get aboard
Left him a standing on the old rail road

He's long gone from old Kentucky
Long gone, got away lucky
He's long gone , that's what I mean
Long gone from Bowling Green
